Author Extra: Moonshine by Julia Talbot & BA Tortuga

Moonshine by Julia Talbot & BA Tortuga

Jenson expects all sorts of trouble being a moonshine runner, but he never thinks it will come from a werewolf bite. He’s dealing with all that while getting his next shipment ready, and he thinks he’s doing all right until David shows up.

Confused, scared, and hot as hell, David is just the kind of trouble Jenson doesn’t need, and everything he wants. Can he help David figure out who bit them both, and keep his life on track at the same time?

Author Extra:

Bacon Apple Pie Moonshine Martini (borrowed from Junior’s Midnight Moonshine website) 
.5 oz Bacon Infused Midnight Moon Apple Pie Moonshine (recipe follows)
½ oz of Original Midnight Moon Moonshine(not bacon infused)
2.5 oz Clear Filtered Apple Juice
1 oz of Simple Syrup
1 ½ teaspoons of Maple Syrup
½ teaspoon of fresh squeezed Lime Juice
Apple Pie Spice Mix (available in baking aisle of most markets)
Place all ingredients, except the Spice Mix in Cocktail Shaker, add ice and shake vigorously.
Pour into a Martini Glass and sprinkle lightly with the Apple Pie Spice Mix

Bacon Infused Apple Pie Moonshine:
½ pound of bacon strips cut in half, then cooked until crisp but not burned/
1 Jar Midnight Moon Apple Pie Moonshine
Pour out ½ cup of the Apple Pie Moonshine and set aside.
Stuff the bacon strips in the mason jar, and cover tightly
Refrigerate for 3 days or longer. Shake the jar a few times twice a day.
When ready to use, strain the Moonshine with a fine strainer lined with cheesecloth and throw away the bacon. If you want, you can put the jar in the freezer for 6 hours and strain it again to catch any remaining bacon fat. 

BA’s note: Never throw away the bacon. Just make sure not to set it on fire if you decide to use it.
